The NEXPReS project

VLBI is a technique in radio astronomy in which observations are carried out using a distributed set of radio telescopes. Working together, these telescopes constitute a virtual radio telescope of truly global size with a resolution that far surpasses that of each individual contributing radio telescope. A VLBI observation generates terabytes of data at each of the participating telescopes. In the NEXPReS project, we will be using dynamic networking connections to transfer astronomical data in real time, and to transfer large archives.
